CHILE
 

 
 
 
 
 

If we had to pick up and move to one country in the world… hands down, Chile would win every time! The beautiful beaches in the north, the stunning landscapes of Patagonia in the south, and the people scattered throughout the country in between makes Chile a must see country. On this Chile page, you’ll find out what great hikes to do, every detail of our two months spent there, and hopefully get inspired to head there yourself!

    When we were “planning” our trip down to South America, we had two must do’s on our agenda. Machu Picchu (which you can read about here) and Torres Del Paine.

    Caleta Tortel, Villa O’Higgins, and Crossing The Border

    So we caught our first bus in over a month. Hitchhiking was completely out of the question, and we didn’t want to miss our only chance out of Puerto Rio Tranquilo. We boarded the bus and had seats on the left, which meant we were going to have an amazing view of the lake for Read more about Caleta Tortel, Villa O’Higgins, and Crossing The Border[…]Read More »

    Ice Climbing and Marble Caves… Puerto Rio Tranquilo

    Trekking on ice, beautiful marble caves, and paying for transportation for the first time in a month. We were so bummed to be leaving Ignacio and Antonio. Traveling with the two of them was so much fun and brought back so many memories of our own road trip back in the states. It made us Read more about Ice Climbing and Marble Caves… Puerto Rio Tranquilo[…]Read More »
  • The Fabulous Four in Cerro Castillo

    The Fabulous Four in Cerro Castillo

    A pregnancy announcement, one huge bear, and a beautiful castle. So there you have it. We met the perfect people to hitchhike with not only because they were going the same way we were, but they were awesome people to be around. Our first stop on our road trip as the fabulous four was Puerto Read more about The Fabulous Four in Cerro Castillo[…]Read More »
  • Patagonia!!… Parque National Queulat

    Patagonia!!… Parque National Queulat

    Wow, we’re in Patagonia…a place so beautiful it literally brought tears to our eyes. The boat ride from Chiloe was quite the experience. We got all our warm clothes out of our bags, checked our bags in on the bottom floor of the boat, and went to find our seats. The boat was set to Read more about Patagonia!!… Parque National Queulat[…]Read More »
  • Chiloe, Chile!!

    Chiloe, Chile!!

    Hitchhiking, beautiful places, and a God who speaks so clearly!! We left Valdivia with the hopes of hitching all the way to Chiloe in one day. We weren’t really sure what that would look like, but thought it was plausible with the possibility of us getting a hitch with the right person. We got up Read more about Chiloe, Chile!![…]Read More »

    Our First Experiences Hitchhiking… Valdivia, Chile

        Making our way to Valdivia was quite the experience! We finally did something that we have been talking about since getting into Chile.

  • Life on a Farm

    Life on a Farm

      Volunteering was one of our goals while backpacking through South America. We weren’t sure where or when this was going to happen, however, we knew when we were supposed to stop and volunteer it would be clear to us. When we went out to the Trankurra Farm for Alex and Jon’s birthday dinner, we Read more about Life on a Farm[…]Read More »
  • Pucon, Chile

    Pucon, Chile

    After getting off the bus from Santiago, we could instantly tell a difference in the weather. The morning was very crisp and cold. Everything had dew on it and you could see your breath: we were ten hours further south.   We walked across the street to the TurBus terminal to wait an hour so Read more about Pucon, Chile[…]Read More »
  • Santiago, Chile

    Santiago, Chile

    After being in Mendoza for a few days, we asked our CouchSurfing host from Santiago if we could stay with him again. When he replied he said that we could stay with him as long as we needed to, and after staying with him for five nights we were all a little sad that it Read more about Santiago, Chile[…]Read More »

    Iquique for Christmas–Valparaiso for New years

      So Christmas relaxing on a gorgeous beach it was. If you remember from a previous post, we were planning on heading to Santiago/Mendoza for Christmas, but the Lord had other plans.

    Salar de Uyuni… Salt Flats Tour

    We arrived to Uyuni from Potosi at midnight. The second we got off the bus, a lady bombarded us, asking us if we wanted to do the Salt Flats tour with her company. We were warned of this lady and kindly told her we were waiting for the morning to book our tour. (She apparently Read more about Salar de Uyuni… Salt Flats Tour[…]Read More »
